Solomon’s Thieves and Earp

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything for Broken Frontier as I’ve been busy with Extra Sequential and its journey from on-line mag to print. Hopefully good news to report on that soon. Anyway, here’s my review of Solomon’s Thieves, a rousing OGN written by Jordan Mechner, Prince of Persia’s creator.
